VDA transport label for blue plastic boxes
All goods (excluding test parts and sample products) packed in Scania blue boxes must be marked with an VDA transport label when Classic EDI or WebEDI is used for despatch advice messages.
Scanias specification of the VDA transport label for EDI can be found on Scania Supplier Portal under Supplying to Scania/EDI/Transport Labels.
For sequence controlled deliveries, all the plastic boxes must be marked with a VDA transport label as well as a main goods mark Odette type G for the pallet unit.
For deliveries of mixed goods, each plastic box must be marked with a VDA transport label type 4902 KLT label. The pallet unit must be marked with an Odette transport label type G.
For deliveries of unmixed goods (one and the same part number), each plastic box must be marked with a VDA transport label type 4902 KLT label. The pallet unit must be marked with an Odette transport label type M.
Affixing the label
The label is to be inserted in the label frame and, if appropriate, secured with at most 2 adhesive points. The adhesive points may not conceal important particulars, the dimension and arrangements of the label frame are also suitable for mechanical voucher reading.
No additional adhesive tags, papers or self-adhesive labels may be applied. All users of such identification marks cause quality losses by making unambiguous identification and automatic scanning more difficult. Staples are NOT allowed to be used on any boxes.
Recycling is rendered more difficult and costs result for sorting, cleaning and removal of adhesive residues.
For Mini- and Small boxes the VDA4902 label can be used. Then it is accepted to use the adhesive and attach the label to the box.
